, and that will be on the northeast corridor. ironically yesterday i was back in new york city actually looking at some of the flood and storm damage. many of the transportation infrastructure facilities were adversely impacted, huge amount of damage. they have incredible new york city is resilient, and how well they are coming back. i think they got about 95% of their transit operations, rail was particularly hit. almost all of east side lower manhattan tunnels flooded, and just think of the massive effort put forward to get those trains running. they probably move about 20% of all passengers in the world in new york city. and a hit like that was incredible. i understand mayor bloomberg, we met with yesterday, will be in town today, and we had discussions yesterday about fema, which our committee oversees and also transportation and infrastructure that was hurt. that may be the subject of additional scrutiny by the committee, but today, again, we are focused on looking particularly at amtrak's structural organization. i might also recall that with the last hearing what we'll be doing on the northeast corridor, our
columnist mark shields and "new york times" columnist david brooks. so david, where are we on this cliff, over, under, sideways. >> we're going backwards. i guess that is a good thing. >> backing away would be good. >> we're going towards the cliff. >> and so what happened is thelection happened. obama wins. clearly he ran on raising tax or raising revenue from the top 2%. center piece. republicans are not stupid. they sort of understand that. so they went through a process the day after boehner said revenues but not rates, and some began to drift over, okay, rates, so you have had movement, until friday or yesterday, thursday, when tim geithner goes up there and delivers an ultimatum which is a chest thumping stick in the eye to the republicans. and all the migration suddenly stops and suddenly they get outraged apt are. and so they are back, they are going back to where grover norquist wants them to be because they are outraged because they feel they have been insulted is, that this is not a negotiation t a war. i think what had yesterday from the administration was a bit of negotiatio
to enjoy, and let's notjp8a commercializet like new york central park. thankskm%( sms for voting no to degaussing -- to change degaussing station to fish and chips restaurant. >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> good evening. i'm just going to repeat what i said yesterday. while it can be├žjpdm argued thae degaussing station is of interest and should be preserved, of greater importance is the effect of a restaurant at that location. one of the reasons given for converting the building to a restaurant is lack of other adjacent food options. just off the top of my head, i can list three in fort mason, two on buchanan, another at the end of marina green, three on crissy field, and as always, safeway's deli so surely that argument is voided. besides can people no longer walk in that wonderful area, any direction and breathe in the stomachs. a7%( m restaurant in that elecn would change ambience of marina green altogether. it would invite more cars, more garbage and the odor of food being cooked and then disposed of. the addition of a seating area will block the view for ma
didn't have it. we found it in the new york public library. it's the first time that column has appeared. >> it's like you're living history. >> history written in present tense. it's a love letter to classic american journalism. great american art form, the newspaper column. >> great book. "ac 360" starts now. >>> we begin tonight as anderson always does, keeping them honest. not taking sides or playing favorites, you can get that other places. we're interested in the facts. they do exist and our goal is to bring them to you so tonight, a keeping them honest investigation about a city that is among the nation's deadliest. chicago, illinois. this week alone, six people have been killed there, including a 15-year-old girl who was just standing in her backyard with her friends. those deaths bring the total number of murders there this year to 476. if you're wondering, that is more than coalition troops serving in afghanistan during the same period so think of that. chicago is in a very real sense a war zone. >> patients keep coming and they come and they come, like machine gunfire
this incentive in a certain way. >> in terms of accessing care, we mentioned during the break, in new york state, we have medicaid is the best insurance money can't buy. with medicaid benefits, people get access to all their medications, doctors advice its advicevisits. arrive to and from the clinic with visiting nurses care. sometimes they are afraid to get a job because they might lose that benefit. that's terrible to think that someone would get out of their care and lose their benefits if they were really working. that's a big problem. >> we will go to break and come back on this. this was sort of one of those ah-ha moments for me. not all states are as generous with medicaid. if you have an hiv positive diagnosis before it passes, you cannot access new health care, because you had a pre-existing condition. it was actually better to have to live below the poverty line to be able to access medicaid, because in order to pay out of pocket for these, you would have to be making $250,000. every other normal job' world in the middle actually meant that you didn't have access to care. >> just to ad
